What Do Math People Do? redux

Robert Ghrist

I wrote recently about a student who asked me what people do with a maths education.  Today I came across a nice interview that John D. Cook did with Robert Ghrist.  "Robert is a professor of mathematics and electrical engineering. He describes his research as applied topology,.."  It just sounds like the kind of interview a student wondering about math might want to read.... twice. 

Come on.. how can you resist a title like "Applied topology and Dante".
